I have The Sims 2 installed with all expansions and official patches (I miss stuff packs however).
I have a problem concerning pets: basically when they come back from work (after a few game days where everything works fine) they don't get a salary. They also can't get a promotion: it seems that the pets coming back home fails to trigger some routine.
I also tried totally erasing the Sims2 directory in my Documents and Settings folder (thus forcing the program to recreate the neighbors from scratch) but I still have the same problem.
However, this doesn't seem to be a common problem around the Internet. Is this bug known? Do you know how to solve it?
